Kotaku AU is reporting that at least one un-named major retailer has instructed its staff to remove all material relating to God of War: Ascension from its shelves in Queensland, following the news that the game has been rated R18+.
“As Queensland has not passed legislation for the R18 rating for games we must remove all reference to God of War Ascension immediately,” reads the quoted email. “This includes all game slicks, posters, pamphlets, hand written signage, 2-way units and pre order signage.”
Queensland remains the only state in Australia yet to pass the R18+ legislation, which was originally intended to be in place across Australia by January 1. Discussion of the legislation will resume when Parliament reconvenes in the middle of this month.
